    Hi all. I'll be starting an access to radiography course in September and was wondering if anyone can help me. Maths and physics are my weakest subjects so I'd like to know which areas of these subjects I should concentrate my preparation study on. I'd also like to know which books people, studying this course, found useful. Thanks

    Hi, are you applying for therapy or diagnostic? As they are very different from each other so would change what you would need to study. I did an access course last year and my maths was terrible, but they really support you on the course so I'm sure you'll be just fine. Don't worry about books or anything yet, wait till you start the uni course. good luck x

    Im starting my access course next month at Kensington and Chelsea college. My first choice for uni is St Georges. I was hoping to hear some more details from the college but so far I havent heard anything. Looking forward to going back into education but also apprehensive. Don't really know what to expect its been a very long time since I was last in education. Thanks for the good luck message :-)

    Hi Emma,

    How was your access course? Are there any tips you could give us? Is it very intense or quite manageable if you put in enough hours?

    Thanks!

    You'll be fine. I did my access course at 23, you'll be surprised how many people are "adult learned" or "mature students" as that is what the course is aimed towards so almost everyone will be in the same position as you The teachers are well aware that access students have had a break from education for one reason or another and mine preferred teaching "older" students as we were more like friends than students! You'll have a blast x

    Hi Lisa, my access course was fantastic. Honestly the best thing I've ever done and would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    You need to work hard as there is A LOT to do in a small amount of time, don't be afraid to ask for help. One of my teachers gave me the best advice I've ever been given; "don't get it right, just get it written". They're not out to get you, believe it or not, they want you to succeed and get to uni! It was such a different experience to school!

    It is intense I won't lie but if you are determined and enthusiastic you'll be fine. A few hours a day outside of when you're in college and you'll be flying thru no problem!

    Good luck x
